The Network Dynamics and Synthetic Biology Group at New York University Abu Dhabi seeks highly motivated and collaborative applicants to fill a Research Associate position in synthetic biology.
Projects will target one of the major bottlenecks in the rational design of synthetic biocircuits : scalability. The main goal is the development of a combined theoretical / experimental framework to accurately predict the complex behaviors that emerge when parts are interconnected, thus accounting for various sources of context-dependence, such as the sharing of limited resources.
To this end, we will develop standardized probing parts, and create computational tools for the quantitative prediction of the behavior of synthetic gene circuits in vivo (mainly E.
coli) and in vitro (cell-free extracts). Members of our interdisciplinary team will leverage experiments to inform modeling / theoretical analysis and vice versa.

The ideal candidate is self-motivated and hard-working with a PhD in synthetic biology, bioengineering, cellular biology, biophysics, quantitative / systems biology, or in a related field.
The position requires experience in molecular and cell biology. Experience working with microplate readers and flow cytometers is desired, but not required.
Successful candidates will take part in collaborative projects involving multiple laboratories from the US and Europe. Excellent communication skills in English, ability to work in multidisciplinary teams, and scientific creativity are essential.
We seek driven and enthusiastic individuals with a proven track record of independent research whose priority is to excel in their career while maintaining healthy work-life balance.
The terms of employment are very competitive and include housing and educational subsidies for children. Applications will be accepted immediately and candidates will be considered until the position is filled.
